    Anyone know the brand of this tube? It came on a Beretta 390 Gold Mallard and before I list the gun it would be nice to know who made it. IMG_7050.JPG

    The second picture shows the markings on the tube.

    Thanks, I checked the Briley site before I posted this. All their slotted Helix tubes have an angled slot to, as they say, "spin the shot".

    And, Briley puts their name/logo on theirs. No name on this odd ball.

    Older Briley Series 2. Don't know your barrel dimensions but Series 2 is used in my Model 32 Krieghoff. As for the markings, they were etched on the early tubes before the current method of imprinting. The end on the tube (which protrudes from the end of the barrel when installed) is identical to a Series 1 in my collection.

    That's definitely a different looking choke.

    Stephen could have just said, nope, not ours. He sent me four more emails trying to find the maker. He didn't have to do that.

    Now, I WAS a dealer ( up until 11 years ago) and got the discounts so my name is still in the system but he went way beyond what he could have. IMO, THAT is why Briley is the best.

    My version which is etched on the side IMP MOD, 581, PAT PEND.
    My oddball choke came with a Model 3200 Remington which I bought locally from an older shooter. I sent the dimensions to Briley and they verified it as an early model Series 1. I then went ahead and ordered a couple of (current model) Series 1 choke tubes, they matched and worked perfectly. A Briley choke tube wrench also fits the choke.

    Thanks to Stephen at Briley it looks like mine is an older model of the
    Flambeau MAD SuperMax Turkey choke.

    You gotta like a company that will help you out even when it doesn’t benefit them

    Your choke looks like an outers branded choke from the 90’s. I’ll look at my dads- I think we may have some in the original blister pack.
